Joseph “J.W.” Adams Obituary

Joseph W. Adams, affectionately known as "JW," peacefully departed this world on Easter Sunday, March 31, 2024, at the age of 95. Born on November 29, 1928, as the youngest of ten siblings, he embraced a life defined by hard work, dedication, and profound love.

Joseph was a man of simplicity, and a man of few words. For over sixty years, he dedicated himself to working to provide for his family. He retired in 1997 as a heavy equipment operator, where he contributed to the construction of the roadways of Pensacola and the interstate highway system in the panhandle of Florida. In his moments of leisure, he found solace in fishing along the Choctawhatchee River and hunting in the local state forests.  

Joseph's greatest source of pride and joy was his family. He was a devoted husband of seventy-two years to his beloved wife, a caring father to his four daughters, and a cherished grandfather and great-grandfather. 

Joseph is survived by his daughters, Sandra Rytman and Lynn (Alan) Rogers; along with his grandchildren, Kristy (Josh) Kolmetz, Cindy Gainey, Heather (Donald) Faulkner, Corey Rogers, Haley (Chris) Busbee; and his eleven great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his wife, Louise Adams; his children, Tommy Adams, Shirley York, and Betty Adams; his grandson, Timmy Gainey; his parents, Hezekiah Adams and Liddie Mae Barlow; and his nine siblings.

A celebration of Joseph's life will take place at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 4, 2024 at Davis-Watkins Crestview Memorial, where family and friends will gather to honor his memory and share cherished moments. A time of visitation will begin at 1:30 p.m.
